Building Systems, Tip Three

3– Have a standard consultation pattern.

—This sounds pretty easy, but it’s not. You know better than anyone else what kind of problems you’ve run into in the past from thinking you and your client were both on the same page, so pick your questions to help troubleshoot past experiences. Maybe you want to require a photo? Maybe you want to run down a checklist of current hair care? I don’t know. But whatever it is, you will save so much time by never skipping on of the questions on your list.

Building Systems, Tip Two

2– Plan your pre-booking.

–As I’ve said in the last tip, I tell them when they should book their next appointment and what it should be for. I also remind them that they might not get the appointment they want if they aren’t pre-booking. It may seem like something simple and obvious, but you’d be surprised how much making this a standard part of your routine can change the flow of your schedule and client intake. When clients pre-book their regular appointments your schedule remains more consistent and you can better handle true emergencies and last minute requests.
